Each of the elements has a variable reactance which must be altered to produce the desired performance.
However, there is enough capacitive reactance to cause a significant phase shift in the current that flows through the load.
It also has a small inductive reactance, of about 11 ohms.
One often sees short monopoles with a coil at the foot, to provide inductive tuning for this capacitative reactance.
Stubs are shorted or open circuit lengths of transmission line which produce a pure reactance at the attachment point.
The capacitive reactance Xc becomes very large and the inductive reactance XL becomes insignificant.
This radiation reactance needs to be tuned out, to get power transfer from the generator to the radiated field.
Reactance matrices is proposed.
Reactance of a capacitor and the phase relationship between p.d. and current.
Reactance of the matching circuit to become dominant as the frequency increases.
Reactance x s is to a good approximation proportional to f.
Reactance Xc which has units of Ohms.
At this frequency a parallel resonant circuit is formed between the primary inductance and the net capacitive reactance reflected back from the secondary.
